The carving is amazing. Also, if you have bad knees might not want to walk down the mountain. Very hard on the joints!

The carving is the only really enjoyable portion of the outing. Everything else was touristy. The actual informational area now has a fee to find out how the caring was done.

The carving is very nice. I suggest going into the museum and learning more about it and taking the sky coaster to get a closer look. I do warn you to try to go to the window portion of the sky coaster they pack it in pretty tight and if you don't you may not enjoy the ride as much.... More

Although I wasn't sure I'd make it the walk up to the top was great & back down was much easier. The carving is very interesting & so was the dog show that was going on while we were there.

Had a great time with family and the carving was awesome. Would definitely visit here again. The view of this carving was visible from all different venues at the park. Very interesting history.

Great fun with our family and 2 grand girls this past Christmas season at Stone Mountain Park. We rode up to top on tram, visited the shows, saw the lights and Christmas parade. Great family fun. We got discounted tickets so that was a bonus.

Always love the carving and the history.Tour the museums first and then see the carving. If you ride the lift, the trip up and down is very quick and you won't get good photos as the windows are smudged and dirty. Take photos from the lawn area.

One day we rode up and climbed down and the other we walked up and half of us rode down. We all loved it! There is a sky ride to save you if you have a little one and you walk up. An experience you must do!
